gall stones

my specialist says he thinks I have gall stones although I have had it removed 20yrs ago to be certain he want's me to wait till I have another attack, I have had 2 in 6months, why cann't I have some sort of test without waiting for another attack.

You can get stones even after the gallbaldder has been removed. There is no reason I can think of to wait for another attack before having some testing done. You may want to ask him to schedule some blood work to check your liver and pancreatic enzyme levels and an MRCP to get a closer look at your common bile duct.
